NSC-GC1 Net-Sharing Cam

 

The proliferation of video-sharing Web sites has caused a steady stream of dedicated peripherals to enter the marketplace; each jostling for a prime p...

Under $300, in-built software, easy to use, 5-megapixel stills

Video quality less than average, controls are slightly too small, boxy design

While the NSC-GC1 cannot hope to compete with a dedicated camcorder, it provides an affordable introduction to video sharing over the Internet. If you plan to screen your video creations exclusively online, you won't be disappointed.

Sony NSC-GC1 review: Sony NSC-GC1

 

Sony NSC-GC1

Stylish black design; 2.4-inch pivoting LCD screen.

Awkward controls; flash gets blocked easily; disappointing video quality; no included or onboard memory.

With a dearth of features and middling video quality, the otherwise stylish Sony NSC-GC1 pocket camcorder fails to justify its premium price.

Sony NSC-GC1 review

 

Every company wants to get a taste of YouTube's popularity, and Sony's no exception. In a jarring change from the company's Cyber-shot and Handycam lines of digital cameras and camcorders, Sony released the NSC-GC1, a pocket camera/camcorder designed...

Sony NSC-GC1 Net-Sharing Cam

 

Easy to use. Inexpensive. Built-in software. 5-megapixel stills.

Poor image quality. Cheap, boxy design. Controls somewhat fiddly.

Sony's limited edition Net-Sharing Cam is an affordable all-in-one solution to shooting video for the Web.

Sony NSC-GC1 First Impressions Camcorder Review - Flash Memory

 

A new type of camcorder is on the rise, anyone who has stepped into a nig-name pharmacy in the last few years could tell you that. They're small (very small), they're cheap (as low as $99), and for once, they're not trying to convince you of their...

Sony NSC-GC1 Net-Sharing Cam

 

This device is totally portable and but does have decent quality. I wish it had a better auto focus or manual ring. It also has only a digital zoom, so it's jumpy, but for the price it's perfect for that last minute vacation. 2gig card records over...
